    I was pleased when I plugged my 32 GB SD card into the adapter and my photos were instantly available for transfer onto my iPad 2. It is much easier to show photos to clients rather than loading them onto a laptop. I was also surprised that the RAW files from my Nikon D7000 were also read without issue.

    USB Memory sticks NOT working

    I wanted to use this to transfer photos using memory sticks. Unfortunately NONE of my high capacity (over 2GB) USB sticks will work with this with the latest software update. This is an aggravating and ridiculous limitation. I CAN manage the battery life on my iPad. I do understand having a limit - e.g. no hard drives but believe the limit is far too low because most devices won't work with this.
    Until this problem I was thrilled with my iPad. Now I'm beginning to see Apple as unnecessarily limiting the uses of this, otherwise fantastic, device.

    Doesn't work with card reader

    I have 2 different card readers that I tried with this accessory. One gave me an error message that said the card reader needed too much power, but it wasn't connected to any power and neither was the iPad.

    The other card reader worked until I brought it on vacation to New Zealand but now gives the same error message. This is frustrating since it is a major reason I bought the iPad. To top it off there doesn't seem to be online help for this.

    It works

    I have just purchased a brand new ipad 2 along with the camera kit and the bottom line is, it works. I was shocked at reading the comments about this product not working and my thoughts went back to the early 90s when i bought my first Windows pc, how could this be, its 2012 and this is Apple the company that is suppose to blow the alternatives away. so here i am 2 days with my new ipad and i imported my pictures from my sd card with no hassles at all. I have a Nikon camera with a Transcend 8gb card, I have successfully used this to transfer pictures from my pc to my ipad. Maybe its the new operating system or the format from the camera, I am happy

    The SD adapter worked fine. Even using a micro SD card and adapter. When I directly connected my Nikon D-200 (which uses a Compact Flash card thus leaving me no choice) nothing happened. I wiggled and jiggled the cable and USB and finally my images came up. Then I tried using my flash drive to transfer some photos to the iPad and got the not enough power message. I don't understand why it won't work. Anyways, I primarily needed it for the Nikon D-200 and it seems to work with it, although not perfectly. There's no way around it, the iPad camera adapters do have design flaws.

    Had a problem but maybe solved it.

    I had the same problem mentioned elsewhere when using the card reader. It seems to be looking for a folder, not simply files on the card. I created a folder called DCIM and moved the jpeg files into it. Where the iPad had previously done nothing, it now opened the flles properly. This is not based on extensive testing but, so far, it works as advertised and we are quite happy with it.

    Only import few photos

    I have almost 2.500 photos and few videos (~3GB data) stored in an micro-sd. Using CCK, it imports around 50 photos or something like that...

    Not working!!

    I have both iPad & iPad2 in my house and got the same error message on both saying that i cannot use this accessory as it consumes too much power. The funny thing is that I actually bought 2 kits thinking it was a smart move and got them delivered to the middle east... Waste of money!! Is there any way to work around the problem?

    bad move apple!

    Picked this up to upload pictures to my ipad and when I connected it with the usb adapter, it came up with the message that it required too much power... I called the apple store before I bought this and asked specifically if there were any known problems with this adapter and was guaranteed that it would work... all I had to do was plug it in and it would upload my pictures. I am not happy with this and will be returning it to apple. What is frustrating is that I called up the apple store before I bought this and was given incorrect information. Why does apple even sell this when they know it won't work... bad move apple... very bad move!!

    Camera connection kit

    We have both the iPad and iPad2. The camera connection kit SD adapter works plug and play on iPad, but not on the iPad2. Still looking for the solution, but nothing yet. It is advertised to work on both.

    Extreme III & Ultra II Sandisk cards

    Ipad2 & adapter seems picky to what SD will work ?
    Does not recognise the Ultra II SD card the Extreme III card worked fine
    Unlucky if you try the ultra card and it does not work may be worth giving it a go with an extreme card as a solution
    good luck

    iPad adaptors

    I use the SD card adaptor o transfer all of my photos from my Nikon. It always transfers without any problems. One note. You should not use you camera to directly download your photos through the USB adaptor. There is always a possibility that your camera or card could be damaged. Always remove the card and plug it into the SD adaptor.

    Here is the problem I'm having with the CCK

    OK Here is the problem I amn having with the CCK (or wiperhpas it is an issue with iOS5).

    First, I was using theCCK under iOS 4.3 without difficulty. I have both the Apple CCK and a thrid party one for CF cards. Both work fione.

    However, a peculiar thing has happened since upgrading my iPad2 to iOS 5. I frequently upload hi-res images (e.g., 4288X2848 12.2mp, etc.) from my Nikon cameras to my iPad2 using the Apple Camera Connection Kit. Prior to iOS 5, I had no issues; all images were transferred and stored, and loaded/recognized by literally dozens of my photo apps in their native resolution.

    After an upgrade to iOS 5, all the hi-res images restored to my iPad during the process that had been there from those previous uploads and new camera uploads since the upgrade, are being loaded into many/most apps at a much lower resolution, e.g., 2048X1360 (2.8mp). I have several EXIF viewer apps that report the correct native resolution (and all other metadata), but several EXIF viewer apps show the lower resolution of the exact same image. I have copied the images back to my PC and they are in fact still 12mp hi-resolution as they came out of the cameras, so it has something to do with the "hand off" of images from storage to the individual apps as they load them.

    Images uploaded via iTunes, which I understand are "optimized" to a medium res by iTunes during the upload, are correctly reported/loaded at the same resolution exactly as stored. Even hi-res images transferred via wifi applications to the Camera Roll are reported correctly by all EXIF and photo editing apps. It is only the ones being uploaded via the camera connection kit that are "downsampled" when read by most (but not all) apps. I have tried three different cameras, all Nikons.

    I wonder if anyone else has exeperienced this, and can confirm this for me, and if this is a bug in IOS 5, or is the OS handing off "optimized" versions of the images to those apps? And why do some apps load the high resolution image without difficulty, is that an app "programming issue"?

    Those of you using the CCK, please check the EXIF data and see what gets reported.

    Camera COnnection kit on iOS 5

    Using the iPad camera connection kit, and an iPad 2 on iOS 5, I CAN connect and use an M-audio Oxygen 49 (version 3) USB MIDI keyboard. No Powered USB hub required.

    Idk much about power and electronics, but i'm pretty sure a Oxygen 49 requires more than 20 ma's, which was the iOS 4.2 limitation

    Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit in a few words

    The connection kit comes in two parts, which makes it easy to lose, or at least harder to keep track of. The USB kit works only with a limited number of cameras, and easily gives up saying the connected camera is drawing too much power (one wonders what the camera battery is for). The SD reader doesn't read micro-SD. In short, this equipment is not very usefull.
